Holland America Line is planning special promotions for the third National Cruise Vacation Week (NCVW) that runs Oct. 20-27. Sponsored by Cruise Lines International Association, the weeklong event features promotions and online opportunities to give consumers the perfect opportunity to book a cruise vacation. Throughout the week, Holland America will be featuring the exclusive Explore4 promotion on select December holiday cruises and 2014 sailings that provides four added-value extras — a free Signature Beverage Package or beverage card, free specialty restaurant dinner, free or reduced fares for third and fourth guests in the same stateroom, and reduced deposits of 50% off the normal deposit rate.

Guests making a booking on select cruises during the week also receive a special NCVW shipboard credit depending on the length of the cruise and type of cabin booked. Guests can receive up to $200 per stateroom in shipboard credits in addition to all four Explore4 offers. For example, guests who book a verandah on a 15-day cruise can receive a bonus $200 per stateroom in shipboard credits. (
